His books include the best-selling New Rules for the New Economy, the classic book on decentralized emergent systems, Out of Control, a graphic novel about robots and angels, The Silver Cord, an oversize catalog of the best of Cool Tools, and his summary theory of technology in What Technology Wants (2010). Doing so will make your first exposure all the more profound and your transition back home far less jarring.

Kevin Kelly’s Excellent Advice for Living is an exceptional book that offers readers valuable insights and advice for leading a fulfilling life, drawn from his vast and extraordinary life experiences. Of all the books on happiness, purpose, and wisdom that I have read (and authors I’ve hosted on my podcast) this is by far the best distillation of advice for living out there, and the wisdom comes in bite-size quotes for daily consumption, for we have to remind ourselves every day how to live. So, his books, YouTube videos, podcasts appearances or blogs are great examples of writing a content, distributing it well to the right audience. Hovering between the practical and the poetic, his learnings are sometimes seemingly obvious reminders of what we know but habitually forget, sometimes pleasingly contrarian, always unselfconsciously sincere.I read this book regularly and the advice is short, simple, and easy to remember, which means it comes up in my day to day all the time and helps give me a good framework for making better choices. Kelly’s timeless advice covers an astonishing range, from right living to setting ambitious goals, optimizing generosity, and cultivating compassion. Having read a lot of these tidbits back in 2020 it was both a refreshing reminder and insightfully eye-opening to read the expanded book version in 2023. And yet where would the world be if each generation didn’t plank its crossing with the life-tested wisdom of its elders?

Kevin Kelly has managed to pack a lifetime’s worth of well-earned, practical and thought-provoking advice into this short gem of a book. Gretchen Rubin, via Twitter"One hundred years from now, when so much of the nonsense of our age is forgotten, people will still remember Kevin Kelly and his wisdom. Perhaps most crucially, he offers an insight into the advice he believes best paves the way to a better life.Also, I read in a few days, but a book like this works better as a page a day (or few pages a day) book to let the advice sink in. If you already have kids or are looking to start a family soon, here are some lessons Kelly learned while bringing up his own. Often, that wisdom comes so simply worded as to appear trite — but it is the simplicity of a children’s book, or of a Zen parable: unvarnished elemental truth about what it means to be alive, hard-won and generously offered.

Excellent Advice for Living is a treasure trove of insights that will transform the way you live, work, and relate to others, all wrapped up in easily digestible bites of wisdom to help you live a good life.Complement Kelly’s Excellent Advice for Living with Henry Miller, upon turning 80, on the measure of a life well lived, Maya Angelou’s letter of advice to her younger self, and this compendium of resolutions for a life worth living drawn from some of our wisest cultural elders, then revisit my own 16 life-learnings from 16 years of The Marginalian. He and his blog are quite old and very interesting, as he digs deep into weird and curious areas - tools, photos, odd documentaries. To his surprise, Kelly had more to say than he thought, and kept adding to the advice over the years, compiling a life’s wisdom into these pages. Even reading only a few pages at a time will surely give you some new insights and inspiration to live a meaningful life. If you need to place an item elsewhere – say to charge a device on the opposite wall – put a few larger pieces next to it.
